Hope all of you out there in the blogsphere had a wonderful Easter weekend.
Ours started off, as usual, with a bit of thrifting. The thrift stores haven't turned up much over the last few weeks, but I did find these Dorothy Thorpe-style glasses on Friday.
They're either humongous shot glasses or cordial glasses without stems. Regardless, I'm just gonna be filling them with tiny fu-fu drinks. Mr. Draper would be ashamed, but I likes what I likes.
The girlfriend and I also did some work in the kitchen. These "chocolate crunch things" turned out well, though I just realized that we forgot to take over the box we packed for the neighbors. Oops.
Can you believe that she's never dyed Easter Eggs?! Those British heathens...
We thought we'd try the tie-dye kit, but our egg-coloring skills were sorely lacking. Diagrams and a multi-page instruction manual? For Easter eggs?! What is this world coming to.
Then the weekend culminated with Easter dinner. It was a glorious feast with virtually all of my culinary favorites: BBQ brisket, deviled eggs, BBQ baked beans, mashed potatoes with gravy, crescent rolls, and green bean casserole.
I think I'll recover in a few weeks, though we did wake up long enough from our food coma to have a Monday evening picnic in Forest Park with Henry.
Overall, I'd say it was a pretty solid weekend. Now let's dust off that exercise bike.
